My children are aged 2 6 and 7 (all girls). They are interested
in Barbie, the Disney channel and Zelda (N64) and are not
interested in space aliens. Their description of these creatures
as 'monsters' is as good as any since none of us know what they
are, assuming that they exist at all.

So the creature doesn't show up in scanned images and I have to
be looking at the original photo in order to see anything, is
this what you're saying?

My faces in the fire comment was only in response to you saying
that some people can see something in your images and some
people can't.

My pleasure, you know my address. I promise not to publish the

Thank you for the kind offer Amy but it's the kind of thing that
my family and I have managed to get over on our own.
